Remote Operation Landscape Lighting Transformers
lighting is operated via mechanical timers located inside the housing of the
outside transformer. On any given job when the customer would like automatic
ON/OFF times, the mechanical timer was the only option. A customer wanting to
have the convenience of timed events would have to deal with the nuances of
annual Dusk/Dawn changes and lost hours due to power failures requiring regular
maintenance of the timer. Oh, and lets not forget daylight savings.
If the install had more than
one transformer, and the customer required a simultaneous event, or
synchronization of transformers, a new hassle presented itself in that you
could almost never get both timers to be perfectly synched. And once again, now
you have two or more timers that need to be regularly maintained to keep them
operating at the proper times.
Take a look at X10 PRO, the simple solution to all your operational needs!
X10 PRO is a manufacturer of
easy to install Lighting and Appliance Control Modules that use the existing AC
power lines in your home to communicate. For Landscape Lighting, the resolution
to the above headaches can be achieved using a simple plug-in Receiver called
an Appliance Module and an in-home Controller named the Mini-Timer.
Installation is quick and
easy, and a snap for one, two or multiple transformers.
At the transformer, plug-in a 2 Pin Appliance Module
(model PAM01) then plug the switched transformer plug in to the Module. The
coding on the Appliance Module will be set to match that of the Mini-Timer
placed in the home.
Note: if multiple
transformers are used, place an Appliance Module into each one and address them
Next plug in the Mini-Timer
and set it on a convenient counter or desk-top located within the home. Plug it in and set the address code to match
the codes set on the Appliance Modules.
The Mini-Timer gives you
daily, timed ON/OFF control for up to four (4) independent zones, or one big
zone synchronized to operate multiple transformers like they were one! Plus the
ability to have manual over-ride from the push buttons located on top of the
No more will you need to
crawl through the bushes and hassle with insects and reptiles
to reset timers
due to daylight changes or power failures. To your customers, the value added
features of convenience, reliability and beautification are a no brainer for
